I have never logged into Second Life. And as much as I consider myself part of the social media revolution, Second Life has always seemed too fringe for me. But I’m very excited to try something new, and I invite the OneDegree community to join Bryan, Kate, CC & I in Second Life on December 14th for a virtual CaseCamp on Crayonville Island.
CaseCamp (background) has always been about experiential learning for marketers – case studies about what others have done, how it’s worked, and how learnings can be applied in other situations. CaseCampSecondLife will take this learning to the next level because the environment itself, the interactions, and the community will be something entirely new for many. I encourage anyone out there who has ever been interested in testing this world out to sign-up. And contact me (Eli – 416-566-2322), or any of the event organizers, if you have questions. I’m a newbie at this too, we can work it out together.
To put all the recent developments, announcements and hype about Second Life in context, I present:
